Today is Mark’s birthday. Unfortunately, it’s also a Tuesday, which means it’s a work day. But I made him an apple cake last night, and we’ll probably go out to lunch before he drops Annalyn off at the babysitter.

Edited to add: I did not, in fact, make the cake last night. But I did, for the record, get up this morning and make his favorite breakfast (biscuits and gravy)!

And then, of course, we have two family holiday celebrations this weekend that we can pretend are being held partly in his honor.

Most importantly is an Office-themed birthday card and bacon-themed birthday present. Believe me, even if that isn’t your cup of tea, he will love them!

With two December birthdays, we never quite celebrate the big days (mine or his) like we want to. But it’s not until after at least one of our birthdays that we think, “Oh  yeah! We should start celebrating our half birthdays instead!”

Well, maybe next year. For now – Happy birthday, Mark!!

How do you like to celebrate your birthday? And what do you do when your birthday falls on a *shudder* work day?
